One Of The Two New 8-D Batteries Installed On Tropical Dreamer Yesterday

15 August 2008 | Palmetto Marina, Hilton Head, SC
Keith - an afternoon rainstorm is coming through today, but we are safe at the dock, the hatches are batoned, the a/c running, and NPR is on the radio
As you can see, each 8-D battery is like 3 car batteries. I have two 8-D batteries, plus a car battery dedicated to the starter for the diesal engine. I charged the new batteries today and just took the shore power off line a few mintes ago to see how they hold a charge overnight. A few days ago I was at the point where I could barely make it from evening to morning without running the engine or the generator (actually I was already developing electric use procedures to get me pretty easily through the night, but they excluded computer, tv, or a lot of light use. These new big boys should last a few days before needing recharging. We'll see.
